• Chinese Restaurant Owner Explodes: “We Don’t Give a S***” About Your Gluten-Free Diet!

    If you’re a picky eater, you’d best stay away from the SO Restaurant in San Francisco. The owner/head chef of SO, James Chu, got so ticked off with overly particular customers the other day that he closed early…and posted a sign on the door that said:


    We are Closed Because of YOU (customers)
    *Yes, we use MSG!
    *We don’t believe in organic food
    don’t give a shit about gluten free


    It was a pretty epic statement, and who could blame him? Chu lost his temper after one group of diners refused to pay because their food was “too spicy,” while another patron yelled and swore at him. That was pretty much the final straw.

    But after a bit of blowback and negative comments on Facebook, Chu decided to put up a slightly less confrontational sign. Here’s what the new one looks like:


    Luckily for Chu, there’s been no evidence of either one of his signs hurting business. To the contrary, the buzz that he’s been generating through news and social media as a result has made the restaurant so popular that Mr. Chu has barely been available for interviews. Looks like he’ll get to have his sign and eat it too.

    The moral of the story? A little negativity can go a long way.
